the "d" on my computer still sticks and I guess the next time we are in
the city I will have to go to the Mac store to get it fixed.
has been a handful and so has Quinton in his own way. Ronan is
jaundice so I have been having to wake him every couple of hours to
feed him and he is a night baby (he stays up at night and sleeps most
of the day).
Tonight or tomorrow I will have to work on the birth announcements to send out.
And my brain feels like it is going to mush already.
threw Quinton and Roy out of the house this morning so that I could get
some work down on the computer and maybe a short nap.
We are trying to adjust to the new baby and spending time with Quinton but it is a challenge.
And it is hard to take pictures of Ronan without a flash (because a flash is not good for a babys' eyes). But we are trying.
if you do not here from me everyday here, I am still alive and trying
to get some semblance of routine here to be able to get things done
around the house.
Back yesterday from the hospital, Ronan Arthur was born at 11:40am on the 18th.
Here is a picture of the kid so far. Now just to get him to go to bed without me holding him.
is 4:58am and the baby has finally decided to come. So we are off to
the hospital soon and hopefully the kid will not make me wait all day
like Quinton did.
Well I have a
itty-bitty bead in my key board and it is affecting the letter "d". So
if you read this and that letter is missing from the word, please
Just about had kitties the other day because I order
silver wire and did not realize how much it has gone up from when I
last bought it. Try double the price. So the pieces that I have made
with the old price of silver, I am going to leave but the next pieces
will be different. Nothing like messing with a good pricing system I
The days have been nice here, so I have been trying to take
advantage of them and making the kid go outside as much as possible,
even if it is just to throw rocks in our grass.(he is in a throwing
I have a doctors app. today but I am hoping to get some
torch time in after that. There are some beads I have been thinking
about making. Nothing big because I can't sit very long or you colors
that have high metals but I have been thinking about playing with some
basic colors I have not worked with in a long time.
I have noticed in the last 2-3 days that I am starting to walk and get
up from sitting like a pregnant woman. You know the whole waddle and
needing to roll myself from the sitting position. Maybe that is a sign
of change for me.
Well I am still pregnant.
Roy has been nice enough to let me torch a little in the last couple of days.
actually made some gingerbread men, snowman, and snowflakes. I am
trying to make some Christmas beads now so that I have some for the
craft shows I am doing later this year.
is here no matter how much I want to deny it. Yesterday I got Roy and
Quinton to help dig out my potatoes from the garden, they did not do
very well because they were small but out of all the hills I planted,
we did fill a 5 gallon pail, so I guess I cannot complain too much.
even though it has been cool and frosty at night, the cucumbers growing
beside the house have not been hit yet so I actually still have some
out there growing.
And yes, I didn't think it possible but my tummy
feels like it has gotten bigger with this kid. I am anxious to get
this baby out but I am holding on to it not popping out yet because I
know it will change our family(just how is the question).
The birthday party went well yesterday. Most of my family came out yesterday to celebrate, which was nice.
made this big bowl of pasta salad and I was razing him because it was
such a big bowl"who is going to eat it all?" Well pinch me, but they
ate the whole bowl and we had other salads and I made them make their
After my sister and the boys came, they played and
tuckered the kid out and Quinton passed out. So we pretty well ate
while he was napping and then Roy had to wake him up to open presents
and eat the cake. Once Quinton saw the presents we had to open them
first before he would even get near the cake, which I found funny
considering when we woke up in the morning and saw the cake, he kept
asking just about every hour if we could have cake.
we are going to hold a small early birthday party for Quinton. Nothing
special just a cake,presents,cold lunch. Here is a picture of the cake
I made for him his birthday.
will be an interesting day because it is our anniversary and we really
have nothing planned, so who knows what will happen.
Last night I worked on some pieces but I wanted to show you what my desk looks like at the moment(actually most of the time).
may not look like a disaster area but it is and then I need something
and can't see it for the life of me and I have to clean up the space.
Here are some bracelets I made too.
find it hard right now sitting at this bench and working because it
puts a strain on my back but I am determined to get pieces done.
Well I got back from the farm, which was a zoo.
sister came out from Grimshaw and brought her dogs and the puppies and
while she was there, decided to do a little remodeling of my parents
kitchen. Needless to say I did not stay overnight at the farm but at
my other sisters place. Quinton and I did spend time at the farm
during the day though.
My sister has these little puppies
that are really cute but Quinton was not partial to them and to be
honest he was a little rough when it came to putting them down, he
would just drop them. It is a good thing that he is still low to the
ground because then the puppies did not have far to fall.
But at my
sisters Shannon's house they have kittens and after a day of him just
looking at them before he patted one, it was different story. He was
patting the kitties, there is one that did not try to scratch him, and
chasing them,dropping them and I think he is more of a cat person.
Which is fine by me because cats are easier to replace then dogs. I
know that sounds bad but I grew up on a farm where kitties came and
went and yes I cried over them but it was harder to loose a dog then a
cat. I can't even remember any of our cats names where I can still
name all the dogs we had.
And NO I do not want a pet right now,
sheesh I am just getting ready to pop out another kid(hopefully before
the due date of mid september).
I am trying to fill an order
right now and it is hard because my back is bothering me and my tummy
is really tight and the kid is kicking up a storm, so I am trying to
work an hour or two at different times of the day so that it is not all
at once, which does not go over well in my mind.
